    greetings to all-

    to the x100f owners:
    are the numbers on the shutter speed dial embossed, or painted/printed on?
    i've seen some photos where it looks like they are embossed and painted inside, and other photos where it does not...

    thank you in advance!

    also, if you wouldn't mind sharing, can you please specify if you have a black or silver version, and how well the paint/finish has held up?

    On my 100T it's either stamped, or embossed. There's definitely some relief there. Hard to tell, but if you fun your fingernail over it, it's obvious.

    Mine's black. Paint job is holding up excellently!

    Looks embossed, hard to say for sure as it is under a window. Black and the finish is holding up just like my M6 and my XD11 - light brassing only on the high traffic edges.

    EDIT - Sorry, looked at both but only commented on ISO as was in a rush. Looks embossed.

    On my X100s I would put money on them being embossed. You can feel the depressions when you drag a sharp edge over them.

    I think you mean 'engraved'. Emboss means: stand above the surface, in relief!
